Professional Learning dates and details to be advised following registration
TheReading Recovery In-Service Course is facilitated across a full school year, with teachers attending two full days of professional learning at the beginning of the year, followed by fortnightly 2.5-hour sessions for the remainder of the year. In addition to attending these professional learning sessions, participants are required to teach individual students in Reading Recovery, on a daily basis, i.e. five days per week.
In order for teachers to be registered as a Reading Recovery teacher at the completion of the Reading Recovery Inservice Course, in the first year, a minimum time allocation of 0.4 (two hours per day) is required for the Reading Recovery teacher-in-training. This time allocation allows for teachers to teach four individual students, in Reading Recovery, on a daily basis.
An alternative training model is available for schools who wish to train a Reading Recovery teacher across a two-year period. In this model, in the first year, the Reading Recovery teacher attends all sessions in the Reading Recovery Inservice Course and teaches a minimum of two individual students in Reading Recovery, on a daily basis. In the second year, the Reading Recovery teacher attends a minimum of six Ongoing Professional Learning sessions, and continues to teach a minimum of two children in Reading Recovery. The Reading Recovery teacher is registered as a Reading Recovery teacher at the completion of the second year.
Participation in theReading Recovery In-Service Courseis open to teachers, selected to train as a Reading Recovery teacher, by their school. Selected teachers will be highly effective teachers with the capacity to provide strategic, differentiated teaching, to support identified students in Year 1 to get underway with reading and writing.
